Quad-core 1.7GHz NAS with 2.5GbE and Feature-rich Applications for Home & Office

Powered by Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-314, quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, 2GB DDR3L RAM, one 1GbE LAN port and one 2.5GbE LAN port, the TS-231P3 features a 2.5GbE RJ45 port, providing up to 2.5 times the speed of regular Gigabit Ethernet and enabling smoother multimedia playback and everyday usage. The TS-231P3 ensures data security by supporting AES 256-bit encryption and various local/remote/cloud backup options – including snapshot protection that allows for files and data to be reverted to previously-recorded states if they are accidentally deleted, modified or affected by malware.

  • 1

    2.5GbE connectivity for smoother everyday use and multimedia playback.

  • 2

    HBS backs up and synchronizes NAS data to remote servers or cloud storage, while QuDedup deduplicates data at the source to optimize bandwidth and storage utilization.

  • 3

    Snapshots fully record the system status and data. If files are accidentally deleted or modified, they can be quickly restored to previously-recorded states.

Easy and Secure File Management

File Station allows direct management of files stored on the TS-231P3 and in the cloud. Users can easily upload files from their PC, drag/drop files between folders, rename/delete files, and configure file/folder permissions to prevent unauthorized access. Users can also use Microsoft Office Online to directly view/edit Microsoft Office documents stored on the TS-231P3. Confidential/sensitive data can also be encrypted to add extra security.

Multi-Point File Backup, Access, and Sync

The TS-231P3 supports file sharing protocols (including SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS) for Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® devices. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that transforms a QNAP NAS into a secure, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-231P3 becomes available for all linked devices (such as computers, laptops, and mobile devices). Hybrid Backup Sync helps backup/synchronize data on the TS-231P3 to another QNAP NAS, remote server, or cloud storage for disaster recovery. Additionally, QuDedup technology greatly improves the efficiency of multi-version backup to destination storage, while optimizing storage utilization. You can install the QuDedup Extract Tool on your computer and restore deduplicated files to their normal status.

Protect Important Data with Snapshots

Snapshots help protect data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. With snapshots, users can quickly restore files to previously-recorded states if files are accidentally deleted or modified, or if the system is compromised by malware. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record modified data. Not only does this save storage space, but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data.

Extend NAS functionality with Containers and Apps

Container Station integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing users to host and operate containerized applications directly on the TS-231P3. With many popular and fully-configured applications available from the built-in Docker Hub® (including for automation and multimedia), the TS-231P3 provides users with a vast array of potential functions and application capabilities.

The TS-231P3 also features apps for backup/sync, content management, communications, downloading, and entertainment. Every app can be installed from the QTS App Center with a single click.

Why do third-party containers installed using Container Station work intermittently on certain 32-bit ARM devices?
